Topics are; Animal-Microbe Symbioses: conflicts, cooperation and co-evolution; Archaea: ecophysiology and evolution; Biodegradation of challenging contaminants; Biodiversity, adaptation and interactions in extreme environments; Biogeochemical cycles of nitrogen; Disentangling the role of nitrogen; Disentangling the role of dispersal in microbial biogeography through theory and experiment; Ecological and evolutionary interactions in microbial communities; Ecology of pathogens in the environment; Effects of climate change on microbial community; Emergent impacts of viruses: killing winners, climbing mountains and altering ecosystem function; Engineered or artificial environments; Eukaryotic microorganisms in foodweb; Evolution of microbial lives; Food microbial ecology: fermentation and beyond, Fungal ecology and function; Human microbiome, Hunting for elusive microbes; Light energy harvest in aquatic environment; Love, hate and cheating: microbe-microbe interactions; Metagenomic discoveries; Meta-ome information to microbial ecology; Microbe-plant interaction; Microbes in inland waters; Microbial carbon sequestration; microbiomes marine ecosystems: key functions from the cryosphere to the deep biosphere; Network (systems) microbial ecology; Single-cell windows into microbial ecology; Soil microbial ecology; The bacterial species definition in the era of ‘omics’; and, Unusual strategies of microbial energy acquisition
The goal of this conference is to provide a superior learning environment that encourages a passionate exchange of ideas among the scientists, students and other attendees. The week-long conference will include a variety of topics such as advances in breeding theory, genetic evaluation protocols, progeny testing, and interaction between forest tree breeding and other disciplines.
The Great Insect Fair is our annual extravaganza celebrating insects with lots of activities, games, crafts, tasty treats and fun for everyone!
